Yea! Day 21! I cannot believe it. We are already to U in the A to Z Challenge that Rena Traxel organized for National Poetry Month! For the letter U, Rena talked about the universality of poetry…how it touches us…how it taps into life’s common experiences. She challenged us to write a poem that depicts our universe. The minute I read about the challenge today, I thought about how writers are able to express their universe creatively. I’m not sure everyone can relate to “my universe”…because frankly…sometimes, I think what I think in my universe is pretty strange. But today, I’m just putting it out there in a trail of thoughts that ended up in a poem.
In My Universe
In my universe, Bunny is an underground spy
with a watchful eye
who has forced a worm to squirm
In my universe, Bunny thumps snake, THWACK! on the head…
no—Drake is not dead
to be clocked
by a fuzzy-type spy-guy.
In my universe, Bunny and a tortured worm can win
once, and then again.
what’s on my slate
in my own verse universe.
of my imagination.
